Glenic Mitts

Last week I shared the Glenic Hat I made for my niece. The pattern included instructions for a pair of fingerless mitts. After completing 75% of the first one I opted to frog it and create my own matching mitts.

Glenic Mitts | Life of Momma BThe original pattern was way too long and the thumb they included was a basic stockinette stitch and seemed out-of-place.

My version does not have a knitted thumb, just a thumb opening.

ALTERED GLENIC FINGERLESS MITTS

Using a set of #8 dpns, cast on 35 and join in the round.

Round 1:  *p2, k3*  repeat till the end of the round.

Round 2:  *p2, k1, p1, k1*   repeat till the end of the round.

Repeat Rows 1 & 2 until the glove measures 6 inches.

At this point, work the piece as if it were flat and knit the following pattern for 2 inches

Row 1:  *k2, p3* repeat till the end of the row.

Row 2:  *p2, k1,p1, k1* repeat till the end of the row

Rejoin the glove and knit for another 1.5 inches. Cast off using a stretchy bind off.

Repeat to create a second glove.

I was able to knit both the hat and mitts with one skein of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn (236 yards)

 

Happy Knitting!
